If you lack the facilities to raise chicks from day old, or simply want the security or convenience of starting with older birds, we offer layer breeds of chickens as started birds.
Price Lists are available at the feed store or from our office.
Please see the Price List for minimum orders per breed and age.
The Red Sex-Link is the best layer and the one most grown for ready to lay pullets. She will produce the most eggs for the least amount of feed. They are well suited for small farmers or hobbyists who allow the pullets/hens to free range.
For customers who are not concerned with maximum egg production and would like a colourful variety of breeds for your small flock..
Please note: a minimum of 6 birds must be ordered for delivery.
Day-old chicks can be beak trimmed on request. We do not recommend beak trimming White Rock chicks due to their rapid growth and shorter life span. We cannot assume responsibility if higher mortality (starve-outs) is experienced with beak-trimmed chicks..
We do not beak trim turkeys, ducks or pheasants..
Started and Ready-to-Lay are infrared laser beak treated at day old to prevent picking and egg breakage. Beak treatment still allows the hens to “scratch” feed or range.
